If you're planning a trip to Dessie, you should be advised that it's much colder there than in other places in Ethiopia. I may sound like Captain Obvious, but nobody had mentioned that to us and we were shocked to find the temperatures in the high 50's rather than in the 80's as they'd been for the rest of our trip. Brrr!!!!
Norah was born in Dessie and we made this journey to get some more information for her about her background. That information is private for her, but I will say that we're delighted to be able to tell her someday about the beautiful area of the country she came from and the wonderfully kind people who played roles in her early life.
